One south Georgia mayor took a break from serving up proclamations to serve some constituents meat loaf and mashed potatoes.

Nashville Mayor Hanson Carter served lunch to Ace Hardware Employees and their guests.

The employees placed the winning bid in a silent auction last weekend.

Although the mayor hoped the bid would be a bid higher, he's happy to have raised money for a good cause.  "And I only brought $100, can you imagine that? You would think I would've brought in $1,000.  Next year, a thousand.  But I didn't do it for the money.  I did it to help raise money for our Better Hometown Program."

The auction helped raise 4 thousand dollars for Nashville's Better Hometown Program.
